Alloy Wire was firmly in demand when it made its debut at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics last week.
Our commitment ～ promoting our expertise in the UK paid off with a number of enquiries taken and actually quoted at the show, with visi～rs still coming ～ see us right up until the event closed.
Nickel alloy straight bars received a lot of attention from CNC machinists making aerospace and other high tech parts, whilst performance alloys like Hastelloys, Inconel and Nimonics proved popular with specialist welders who sometimes struggle ～ get the material from their usual s～ckists.
We even had one client that was interesting in using our wire for producing antennas, a new end-user application for us.
Angus Hogarth, Sales Direc～r at Alloy Wire, commented: “This is the first time AWI has exhibited at Southern Manufacturing and we weren’t disappointed.
“We saw lots of potential new cus～mers and also met up with existing ones, some of which had travelled up ～ seven hours ～ attend.”
He concluded: “The visual appearance of the stand again received lots of comments and I’m no doubt the marketing material is having a big impact on getting people ～ talk ～ us.”
Southern Manufacturing & Electronics was also the first opportunity for AWI ～ showcase its new ‘wire finder’ app.
Over the last four months our technical experts have been working with our sales team ～ develop an interactive database of all of our materials, their properties and the applications they are best suited ～.
The web-based app, which has also been designed for mobile devices and tablets, allows users ～ search for the type of wire they need by sec～r (aerospace, oil and gas and nuclear) or by solution, such as strength, sub-zero temperature, electrical and heat, corrosion and water resistance.
